I had a fistulatomy about 6 days ago. The pain has been mostly manageable, except after a bm - I feel like I might pass out!! My routine has been to get immediately in the bath after, which seems to bring things back down, and then after I get out I use the topical numbing stuff. But I have to work tomorrow and and all week long. I'm afraid of the pain if I have a bm at work. Has anyone found anything to ease the pain besides a bath? I'm taking the metamucil and things are plenty soft. I can only take IBuprofen for pain, since I can't work or drive (or parent) on the hydrocodone. Oh and I do not have chron's if that makes any difference.
